Wondering where I am?

If you are a member of my facebook group, you probably already know that I'm going to be returning to television this year, with a starring role in BBC Three's new comedy show 'Trexx and Flipside' playing the leading role of Trexx.


I started filming yesterday - the scripts are hilarious and the set ups are even funnier! Wanna know what it's about? Well, the official BBC press release says:

A multi-platform sitcom about hip hop and urban poetry. Trexx and Flipside are wannabe hip-hop stars but their music label – Wu Hah Records - is run by Mr Brilliance who is more in tune with crooning than rap. Fortunately, his so-called assistant, Ollie, knows what she is doing and loves the boys' work. But even she worries that their enthusiasm is doing more harm than good – when they crashed the British Rap Awards (Bras) in a borrowed strip limo shared with a hen party, for instance. And, when it comes to using a little muscle, the hip-hop world is inhabited by the uninhibited, and gangsta rapper B-Ice has sworn to keep the boys exactly where he put them – in the gutter. Pitted against their rap rivals and backed by a no-hoper of a manager, will Trexx and Flipside ever make it?

Further details about Trexx & Flipside will be revealed as soon as they let me but you'll be able to watch the show come June/July on BBC Three and my lovely family at 1Xtra are allowing me to take that time needed to be in sunny Manchester to film the program...SO I'm going to be taking a few weeks break from my radio show.

Between 4th Feb and 17th March Seani B and DJ Target will be taking it in turns to look after you weekdays (Targeeza doing the do this week) on 1Xtra but I'll be checking in at every chance I get and of course will still be blogging right here about everything that you've come to expect from this blog with a few extra added behind the scenes bits (if I can manage to sneak my camera in during filming)

It will be just a break (you don't think I'd give up my dream job on radio that easily do you?!!) so if you're one of those people who sends me music, keep on sending it but above all, make sure you keep it locked to 1Xtra!

    Targeeza to the rescue!
    Look forward to the show as long as it is as funny as Saxondale was!
